Courage launches me above my fears.

Fear is a natural and healthy feeling necessary to survive. Instead of buckling in the face of fear, I use it to stir my courage. Fear makes it possible for me to experience a degree of bravery stored inside of me.

Courage is the presence of action in the midst of fear. My courage takes me above my fears and into a place where dreams come true. Because of courage, my heart is exploding with daring hope.

I revoke the power of fear in my life, which tries to control my actions. With faith lighting the way, I take risks beyond anything I have done before. I shake off timidity due to a lack of confidence and replace it with valor. 

I have the audacity to dream outside of the limits set on myself from childhood. I refuse to believe negative words spoken about me as a child. I choose to believe my Creator has a greater purpose for my life.

I seek to know my purpose with a heart willing to do what it takes to see my destiny fulfilled. By clothing myself in comforting peace, I stand up to the fears that immobilized me in the past. When I feel afraid, I pray, placing my trust on a higher power.

I come to terms with rejection and failure because sometimes they are the result of taking a risk. I accept that rejection and failure could be my greatest teachers. By looking at every outcome in a positive way, I learn and become more experienced.

Today, I choose to stand up to fear and allow courage to drive my actions. I launch myself into action reaching far above the threshold of fear.

  2. What do I need courage for today?
